Proverbs 25:6-16 (New Revised Standard)

View In My Bible
6 Do not put yourself forward in the king's presence or stand in the place of the great; 7 for it is better to be told, "Come up here," than to be put lower in the presence of a noble. What your eyes have seen 8 do not hastily bring into court; for a what will you do in the end, when your neighbor puts you to shame? 9 Argue your case with your neighbor directly, and do not disclose another's secret; 10 or else someone who hears you will bring shame upon you, and your ill repute will have no end. 11 A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in a setting of silver. 12 Like a gold ring or an ornament of gold is a wise rebuke to a listening ear. 13 Like the cold of snow in the time of harvest are faithful messengers to those who send them; they refresh the spirit of their masters. 14 Like clouds and wind without rain is one who boasts of a gift never given. 15 With patience a ruler may be persuaded, and a soft tongue can break bones. 16 If you have found honey, eat only enough for you, or else, having too much, you will vomit it.
